'THE RAID' Director Gareth Evans Could Make 'BREAKING THE BANK' For Universal

Deadline reports that Universal is developing a 'true life' crime thriller set in the sports world titled Breaking The Bank. It's is based on the life of former UFC fighter “Lightning” Lee Murray, a mixed martial arts street brawler who masterminded the largest cash heist in history in England in 2006. The most recent draft of the screenplay was written by Kerry Williamson. They've tapped British director Gareth Evans who broke out last year for his festival smash-hit The Raid to possibly helm the thriller. Darren Aronofsky had been wanted for the project before he dropped it to pursue production on Noah.
